    Great Suspense Film

    The trailer can be very misleading on what the movie is. Film is a suspense, sort of horror type of film. It is very well done with some twists and turns that leave you wondering what's going to happen next. It isn't following a predictable formula, which for once is a nice change of pace.

    I saw the trailers for this film and thought it looked pretty good, especially among all the other B-movie creature feature releases of the past several years. I also enjoy the director and heard some good reviews for this films so I am looking forward to checking it out.

    This is a good movie for shark lovers and horror fans, but won't win over anyone who doesn't already love either one. The extras were a nice touch, again primarily for shark lovers. Great looking movie though, would make a good reference program for water reproduction on a good tv.

    I'm sure the movie is very good. However, it wouldn't play in my Samsung blu-ray player that I purchased last year with my UHD tv. Had to return it. Luckily they took it back. Suppose it's my fault for not knowing UHD movies wouldn't play. Just wish it were formatted for both.

    Could have been a better movie if it was R-rated.

    The Shallows is an ok watch. I liked it vfor what it provided, but for me it was only a 1 time watch. This film is definitely not for kids so it should have been a deep sea R Rated film instead of watered down PG13. Stick with Jaws if you want a killer shark horror

    I have never seen this before, bought on sale for 5 bucks. Registered the digital code and resold the disc for 4 bucks, so cheaper then renting and I own it. Good shark movie if you like to be scared

    It's not very easy to make a movie with 3-5 actors and make it entertaining, but it actually was. And a shark movie, how boring could that be? This one is actually pretty entertaining and has a good moral. We enjoyed it.

    Well photographed and pretty suspensiful. Had a better than average Rotten Tomatoes review and warranted the rating. No need to buy the 4k disk. The normal Blu-ray upscales well and you'll save $14.00.

    Once again a film that had potential but seem to fall short on plot and excitement A Great White Shark torments a woman stranded on a tiny rock about 200 yards from shore. This movie is no where near that of JAWS.

    ... but not worth the money spent on film. I needed a 4K DVD to try my new set-up. I wish I would have chosen a different movie. While the 4K part was good, movie was so and so. Pretty actress, though.

    This movie is at best a weak effort to revive the Great White Shark suspense movie of the past . It did have a more believable story line of a fearless predator of the deep protecting it's feeding ground .

    When a tourist surfer invades a shark's feeding grounds she becomes the hunted. This is a fresh take on the Jaws type movie pitting shark against human. It's a good movie to pass the time.

    Film had a better than average Rotten Tomatoes score. It's not better than average. The shark scenes are well done but Blake Lively is much of an actor and brings the film down.

    For a movie that's pretty much just a girl trying to survive a shark attack...it's decent. I went in with low expectations and they came out slightly higher. Plus, Lively is easy to look at.

    Although not as engaging and amazing like Jaws, The Shallows does have its fun moments of scares. It gets a little ridiculous towards the end but it's a fun popcorn horror movie non the less

    I had higher expectations for this film. What starts with a decent story turns into complete silliness. The picture quality is top notch, so it's worth a watch.

    This movie pits a young woman's desire to live against a shark's desire to eat. Both characters are doing what they need to do to survive. Overall, entertaining.
